‘I Miss You’ Park Yoochun, Simply an Actor

JYJ member and actor Park Yoochun is proving himself to be just an actor.

He is currently starring in MBC drama “I Miss You” as a determined and hurt detective Han Jung Woo. He had been living his life in guilt after losing his first love Soo Yeon (Yoon Eun Hye) and chases criminals with a steady charisma sure to scare anyone.

He seems to undergo very drastic mood changes and this can be dangerous for an actor but Park Yoochun was able to pull it off nicely. When he was down, he was really down but when his emotions were really necessary, he was explosive and expressive.

Many idol actors try to bring their stage mannerisms to dramas and this never works. However, Park Yoochun has definitely practiced his craft with his previous projects and he’s an actor who only focuses on his character, rather than his own self-image.

“I Miss You” continues to air the painful love story between two long-lost lovers and many are praising Park Yoochun’s portrayal.

JYJ’s Yoochun Impresses Viewers With Acting Skills On “I Miss You”

JYJ‘s Park Yoochun has impressed viewers with how his acting skills have matured.

On the fifth episode of MBC‘s drama “I Miss You“, viewers were struck with how Park Yoochun masterfully portrayed the same character all grown up, by imitating small ticks and habits of his younger self when anxious or pensive. As a result, Park Yoochun’s character becomes more believable and the artist builds more credibility as a budding actor.

The stills captured from the episode reveal Park Yoochun biting a pen or puffs his cheeks out like his younger counterpart actor who plays his character during his boyhood years. Young actor Yeo Jin Goo plays the same character in his teen years.

Netizens who saw the artist’s performance commented, “He does wonderfully to portray the transition of the character from a young boy to young man”, “He is becoming more and more like Yeo Jin Goo” and “His expression while biting the pen is adorable.”

The episode featuring the transition stage of male character Jung Woo aired on November 21.

Kim So Hyun “Yuchun oppa is my style”

[parts unrelated to Yoochun omitted]

Among my friends, there are a lot of Yuchun oppa’s fans. They all say they envy me. At first, when Yuchun oppa called me “Little Princess” on Twitter, I was suprised but I felt happy. Even lately, he still calls me time to time “Little Princess”.

Once I got to film together at three with Jingu oppa and Yuchun oppa and Jingu oppa told me “Whenever you’re with Yuchun hyung, your laughing starts to sound different” and “The one who is acting with you is me. You mustn’t act this way, Sohyun”.

Both of them are charming and take good care of me. I think Yuchun oppa is a bit more my style than Jingu oppa. I feel like Yuchun oppa is cute. There are times when I feel like he’s acting younger unlike his age. I think his charms are really overflowing (T/N he possesses a lot of different charms).

Kim Sohyun, living out every Yoochun fangirl's dream. She's so precious ♥ The whole thing about her looking at Yoochun differently than she did at Jingu cracked me UP

Also, while the whole cast in general is fantastic(along with the directing, lighting, cinematography of the whole drama tbh), I do agree that Yoochun has improved a lot with this drama already. IMO, his improvement started to show toward the end of the Rooftop Prince and now, I'm just happy to see him doing well.

The chemistry of the IMU cast is amazing and I think that that's a big part of what's helping Yoochun too, kinda like how the cast of SKKS helped him back them (though IMU-wise, maybe minus EHY and YSH because while I'm all for their characters being BFFs who grew up and got over their respective traumas together, I CANNOT see as a couple and no, it's not because of the age gap :\ ~Joy~ and ~Harry~ just do not click for me).

Though tbh, I think my real OTP of this drama is Jungwoo and Sooyeon's mom. They are just too. fucking. cute. If I didn't have a damn research paper to write, I'd be watching ep 8 right now >:( Instead, I'm just writing a long rambling comment. Finals, man.

It's sooo cute..

She is having a crush on Yoochun.. Jin Goo is having a crush on her. And YC know exactly her feeling and treated it properly and just play along the oppa and never go more..

Jung Woo and SooYeon mom's is my OTP too... They are 'lover' XD

I still haven't seen this drama, but I really want to.
I heard he has improved a lot.

I was afraid to watch it because I thought, omg I am going to death spiral with the drama, but I was got so hooked! I was going to just watch a clip of it last night and 3 hours later I was cursing myself for getting hooked! Episode 1&2 awesome! Ep 3 is a lot of drama, but still good. Can't wait for Ep 4 tonight :P

And to those saying YSH would out-act both YEH and PYC... *hackhack*

So I resumed my watching of this drama after a certain traumatizing episode, and boy, totally hooked. Which is strange, coz I was sure something or other would tick me off, but somehow it's really engaging. Well the cast is great, the production itself is really good, the plot...oh the plot. Oh! and the chemistry! Usually I suffer a degree of second-lead syndrome, but the chemistry! Just...!!

Yoochun is a natural talent. The improvements from drama to drama is almost drastic. But in particular, what I love so much, is that I can feel him taking acting seriously. Like an artform. Which all actors should be doing btw. I don't know if he's been taking formal lessons or what, but the understudying for this character...brilliant. A lot of actors don't do that, unless directed to.

Still, as much as I love him onscreen, I wonder whether this much dedication to acting would negatively impact JYJ's future musical careers. And Jaejoong as well. They're spending too much time acting that it may take time to rediscover their magic and feels for music. Or perhaps not.

On another note, I don't wanna see this drama dubbed. The article wasn't clear, but did they mean that this drama will be dubbed into English, or another version to be filmed will be dubbed. If they really wanna dub this series...the voice actors better be good. Crap dubbing ruins the experience. Like times 300. I've watched some of the Hollywood dubbed movies for Chinese movies, and while serviceable compared to anime dubs, not exactly amazing either.

Anyway, during holidays I'll be juggling I Miss You, King of Dramas, and Jeon Woon-Chi. Haven't seen Siwon's other dramas, but the guy's hilarious in KOD. Is it just the role, or is it simply improvement?

I agree with you on the dubbing, it can weaken the acting and can destroy the overall drama experience.
I tried to watch Skip Beat where they dubbed Siwon and Donghae...Siwon's voice was awful.
jenniquack 30th-Nov-2012 01:05 pm (UTC)
It was, wasn't it?
Donghae's was fine, but Siwon's was really off.
But other things about that drama was off to me as well...a total tragedy coz I'd kept up to date with Extravagant Challenge news before it aired, but couldn't bring myself to watch it in the end >___<

however, some dubbing for mainland series are really good e.g. BBJX

“Whenever you’re with Yuchun hyung, your laughing starts to sound different” and “The one who is acting with you is me. You mustn’t act this way, Sohyun”.

IDK, but I cracked up reading this. Since the first time Yoochun said he wish to have a daughter like her, I kind of know that she has a little crush on him too. :3
juhli 30th-Nov-2012 10:22 am (UTC)
Kim So Hyun is growing up beautifully...I can see a bright future for her ♥ Jingu too, of course !

I enjoy Yoochun's acting, but his eyebrows are so distracting to me! He uses them to emphasize everything he says, it looks kind of unnatural for me...Am I the only one thinking this?
islandgurl84 30th-Nov-2012 10:31 am (UTC)
I love this post! Thank you OP, its perfection in itself!

1. Yuchun is doing a magnificent job as crazy det. han jung woo. some scenes he's a totally adorable esp when he's with his "lover" lee seo yeo's omma. other times he's down right scary, exploding and angry. sometimes he's just a conflicted soul, crying, guilty, confused, anxious. other times he's a man in love,so innocent. so many facets in just one episode, i wonder sometimes how he does it. and the transition from young han jung woo played by yeo jin gu was almost seamless. i swear there were nuances in adult han jung woo which were totally that of the young han jung woo aside from the obvious blowing of the cheek and ballpen biting. Yuchun is definitely a natural and is proving himself acting beside sunbaes like Yoo Seung hon and Yoon Eun Hye.

2. the chemistry of the cast is beyond hot. Yuchun with Yoon Eun Hye is explosive, but so is Yoon Eun Hye with Yoo Seong Hun. Yuchun with the omma, even with his supposedly half sister and with Eun Joo the daughter of Det. Kim and the bromance between Han Jung Woo and his detective partner hyung is over the top.

3. I ship Kim So Hyun with Yuchun oppa, so sue me.

4. No, no , no to the english dub. if not done right, it ruins the whole drama.
jenniquack 30th-Nov-2012 01:31 pm (UTC)
Totally agree!! Han Jung Woo sure is a moody character. Yeo Jin Goo's portrayal was outstanding and Yoochun's is pretty amazing as well. I see in Yoochun's acting that he's picked up on child Han Jung Woo's way of speaking and mannerisms. Indeed more than just the cheek blowing. Cutesy HJW, serious HJW and explosive HJW, adult and child versions are just in sync.

The cast is simply amazing, hands down. But I have to give kudos especially to YEH. Haven't seen her in so long, but she captured me with LSY from the get-go. She's got the character down pat.
